Deliciously Dark Doodles


It's Monday again, and there's only oneprefix for Mondays that counts - Macabre Monday! Over at the Haunted Design House this week, the challenge s "alone in the dark" and you're to use a black or creepily dark background for your main image. We're sponsored by the lovely Teri, owner and creator of Delicious Doodles, so you need to get entered for your chance to win some of her glorious digi stamps. And don't forget that Teri also has her own challenge blog, Delicious Doodles Challenges, and the current challenge there is "Anything Goes" so why not combine your entries for double the chance to win? My piece uses the wonderful Dark Valentine image by Delicious Doodles, and papers by me, but I like this one so much that you may see it appearing in a set very soon ;)
These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Peachy Keen - sketch + metallic elements
Wags n Whiskers - black green pink white
Flutterby Wednesday - include an angel, fairy or butterfly
Do It with Digis - fairies pixies or elves
Delicious Doodles - anything goes
A Gem of a Challenge - pearls and swirls
Irish Teddy - no designer paper
Paper Pretties - pink green and neutral
Totally Gorjuss - bling it on
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - pearls and swirls
Paper Sundaes - choose two from list, I used sparkle and pearls
Make It Colourful - colour black hair. Hmmm, mine doesn't have the wonderful shine that can be done with black hair, but I am quite pleased with the way that I've done black-ish hair on a black-ish background and managed to still make it clearly visible.
Sparkles Forum Challenges - anything goes
Aud Sentiments - anything goes
Creative Friday - anything goes

what an interesting digi take on the colouring challenge we're holding at Make it Colourful! i think the green glow to her hair works great for your image, instead of jet black, as it reflects some of the existing colours in your card. very clever! thanks so much for joining the Colour Addicts this week!

Who's a sneeky beeky then??!! Great idea to combine the challenges though! Love that paper too - it's a purple one, so I would anyway! LOL
Thanks for playing at the Delicious Doodles Challenge this week, good luck with the draw!
